Versus on DIRECTV


Unfortunately, Versus is no longer available on DIRECTV. Comcast, the largest cable company in the U.S. and our largest competitor, owns the channel and has forced us to pull it down. Here is the situation.
DIRECTV was already paying Comcast more than any other non-Comcast distributor to air Versus — and now Comcast is demanding an overall rate hike of 20% on top of that. Comcast also forces DIRECTV to make Versus available to a much larger portion of our customer base at our own expense than they require from other TV providers — most notably, DISH Network. We simply cannot accept these unfair and outrageous terms. All we're asking from Comcast is equal treatment.
Comcast and Versus are currently engaged in a noisy publicity campaign to distract attention from the fact that they are trying to take advantage of DIRECTV and our customers. The bottom line is this, if we were to accept their unreasonable demands, we would have no choice but to pass on the increase in cost to our valued customers. We do not want this to happen, especially in these difficult economic times. That's why we're standing firm in our negotiations with Comcast.
Regardless, we will continue to work in good faith with Comcast to try to reach a fair and just settlement. Our commitment to deliver the best TV service for the best price is and has always been our first priority. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
DIRECTV still leads the industry in sports programming, whether or not we have Versus in our channel lineup. For college football, NHL hockey and other sports, here's just a brief list of what's available on DIRECTV:

•College football: Available on Big Ten Network, CBS College Sports, ESPN, ESPNU, ESPN GamePlan, The Mtn., local channels and your RSN.
•NHL: Available on NHL Network, NHL Center Ice, and your RSN.
•Mixed Martial Arts: Available on HDNet, Spike TV, and UFC on DIRECTV Pay Per View.
•Auto Racing: IRL available on ABC, Formula 1 on Fox and Speed.
•Bull riding: Available on ESPN2 and the Houston Rodeo on DIRECTV Pay Per View
Hunting and fishing: Available on ESPN2, The Sportsman Channel, The Outdoor Channel, and Pursuit TV.

Your negotiating skills suck dude.

You should have bitched about losing the NHL which is the reason you wanted Vs in the first place and then explain that you will be looking into switching providers. and then they put you on with someone who can do something to keep you subscribed like offer NHL center ice for the season.

Did you even get to someone that spoke english or did you get took by some bangledeshi dude named mark?

The only reason I don't have a dish and still have Charter is that every one of the Red Wings games can be seen on there. Otherwise I ould have told them to ram it several years ago.

DirecTV is blaming Comcast.

I have noticed Time warner cable is jumping on the bandwagon with ads saying people in So Cal should switch to cable if they miss Versus.

Is it true that Comcast owns Versus? I don't think cable companies should own channels...

well shit i didnt think about telling them i would switch to cable.. *%#$.. why didnt i think of that.. i doubt i can call back again and do that.. maybe wait a month or two and then call back.. bc right now I have the first 1/3 of the season for free.. and if you think about it.. im canceling my service in Feb to move to germany.. so maybe get another $50 credit in Nov would end up making it free for me too
